``SEC. 604. REPORTING ON SELECTIVE EMBARGOES.

    ``(a) Report.--If the President takes any action, pursuant to 
statutory authority, to embargo the export under an export sales 
contract (as defined in subsection (e)) of an agricultural commodity to 
a country that is not part of an embargo on all exports to the country, 
not later than 5 days after imposing the embargo, the President shall 
submit a report to Congress that sets forth in detail the reasons for 
the embargo and specifies the proposed period during which the embargo 
will be effective.
    ``(b) Approval of Embargo.--If a joint resolution approving the 
embargo becomes law during the 100-day period beginning on the date of 
receipt of the report provided for in subsection (a), the embargo shall 
terminate on the earlier of--
            ``(1) a date determined by the President; or
            ``(2) the date that is 1 year after the date of enactment 
        of the joint resolution approving the embargo.
    ``(c) Disapproval of Embargo.--If a joint resolution disapproving 
the embargo becomes law during the 100-day period referred to in 
subsection (b), the embargo shall terminate on the expiration of the 
100-day period.
    ``(d) Exception.--Notwithstanding any other provision of this 
section, an embargo may take effect and continue in effect during any 
period in which the United States is in a state of war declared by 
Congress or national emergency, requiring such action, declared by the 
President.
    ``(e) Definitions.--As used in this section--
            ``(1) the term `agricultural commodity' includes plant 
        nutrient materials;
            ``(2) the term `under an export sales contract' means under 
        an export sales contract entered into before the President has 
        transmitted to Congress notice of the proposed embargo; and
            ``(3) the term `embargo' includes any prohibition or 
        curtailment.''.

SEC. 3. ADDITION OF PLANT NUTRIENT MATERIALS TO PROTECTION OF CONTRACT 
              SANCTITY.

    Section 602(c) of the Agricultural Trade Act of 1978 (7 U.S.C.
